4. Provide a Relevant Destination
While many viewers go to a brands website after watching a video, most of them go to Facebook. If you are counting on a video with a lot of traffic, consider adjusting your Facebook page to include graphics from the video. If this does not work for you, have your website reflect the video or the video reflect your home page. If your video is for a campaign, than your landing page should continue with your videos message, pulling the prospect closer to becoming a customer.
5. Tell a Story
Viewers love to hear stories because it does not sound like a sales pitch. A fun story about a person with a business or personal issues resonates with people who have the same issue. Including a form of entertainment can relay confidence and fun. These stories increase your ability to be shared with others, boosting your exposure.
